« on: September 24, 2011, 04:10:12 AM »
I know a lot of you are frustrated at how someone can get this wrong.

But I use
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/embed/4nOSUbEqLKs" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/embed/4nOSUbEqLKs</a>

this should work
but it doesnt on my screen
can someone confirm that it works for them?
does it work on everyone elses screens?

Anyone else have this happen to them?

Doesn't work for me... you're missing a /v/ somewhere in your code...

Well
I know a lot of you are frustrated at how someone can get this wrong.

You have to take your link such as this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C_uqRx01V8 and swap the watch?v= with v/ so it would become http://www.youtube.com/v/7C_uqRx01V8

You can now embed it with flash, go nuts!
